The rapid spread of COVID-19 across borders has caused companies and organisations worldwide to fundamentally rethink and restructure the way they work. Telecommuting replaced office life, and e-learning substituted in-person workshops on a global scale. While GRID3 operations have not been untouched by the pandemic, the partnership’s reliance on innovative learning solutions since its inception has allowed for a fast adaptation to the new circumstances.
GRID3 has recently launched a webinar series in which GRID3 experts break down technical details about our work in a user-friendly and easily understandable manner. The series will include webinars about settlements, boundaries, population modeling, census, and other areas of GRID3 expertise.
To kick off the series, GRID3 experts introduce settlement work, detailing how we create and categorise settlement layers with potential health applications. See the video below.
Under the leadership of the Government of Namibia, GRID3 has launched another COVID-19 data hub in sub-Saharan Africa, expanding the access to much needed reliable and timely geospatial data to fight and prevent the global pandemic on the continent.
